Inaris "Neves" Pickaxe
So I just want to say that this pickaxe is a HUGE let down. So much grind, so much hard work, completing missions over and over again, for not even 200 exotics per vein anymore.
I figured that for such a long grind, and most of the missions being completed, I would never have to craft a pickaxe on-planet ever again. But much to my dismay, I find that the durability of this pickaxe is roughly the same, if not slightly worse, as the Shengong "Dong" pickaxe. And for a 12% yield gain? Honestly, it's pathetic.
The Neves pickaxe effectively costs 1000 Ren and 1650 exotics, because it's locked behind the other expensive pickaxes, so you HAVE to spend that much. And it's the BIGGEST let down EVER. Why does the Jijing bow offer such good durability that I've never needed another bow. But the most expensive pickaxe, "a miner's dream," (nightmare more like it) offer such a low durability? It makes no sense. The investment/return for Neves is atrocious. PLEEEASE fix it and make it worthwhile.

I also wanted to add to this that there are a lot of tools in the workshop that once you buy them, you hardly ever need to craft it again on planet, which I figured is the whole point of the workshop.
So far the only tool I constantly need to make over and over is the pickaxe. And sure, I get it, it IS the most-used tool in the game, but it still deserves durability that's on par with the Titanium Pickaxe, at least, or better. It is a huge grind, after all, to get your hands on the Neves pickaxe. I really, really hope the knife doesn't disappoint also because it's next on my list to unlock/purchase.
And thank you again for all the hard work!! (couldn't fit it in the original comment)
yeah... complete flop there aswell...
this is the most unbalanced game ive played :D
100% Agreed! After spending 1400 exotics, I should have a pick that lasts longer than a 'dong' or even a stone pick.
